Even I could tell that there was quite a difference in grip between my qualifying session (second session) and my race (eighth session). It didn't help that it was bloody freezing on track itself, so the track temperature can't have been very high at all. I was cold even in my race suit
For the race the top 6 were sat in their karts at the exit of the pit lane for the last 5 mins of the race, then positions 7-10 got karts fresh from the previous race. I'm good at these racing driver excuses
Apparently the Bristol ones are pretty new (obvs don't know about the Cardiff ones, altho apparently we might be going there soon :tilt so there doesn't seem to have been to much difference in the ones I've driven certainly in terms of outright lap time, but there's definitely some with interesting characteristics - the one I drove in the Round 1 race just drifted everywhere
At the beginning there's a close fight for position with 3-4 cars into "Tiergarten".
Later the car right in front has an accident during an overtaking attempt (5:15 min.).
Then a short but unexpexted slide in the very fast left turn "Mutkurve".
After the crash there's no direct fight for position anymore but many cars of lower classes to overtake.
Yeaa, I don't really understand how it works exactly, but I know my revs can't get over 14.11k :P
I'll find out for sure later, the rear was 82.. I know that for sure :').
Was my dads fault really (as always) He tightened up the pin to hold the brake pads in, in like 7 Celsius temperatures.. I presumed the calipers expanded when they got hot and snapped the pin
Normally aim for like 14.0k, I just got a mega run out of that final corner haha There's two classes, one just named senior rotax which runs a minimum weight of 162KG and the heavyweight class which runs 177KG... Since I weight about the same as a bag of sugar, I'm in the 162KG class
Yeahhh, It's not bad.. It's pretty much in its prime now with only 4/5 hours of running since a full rebuild. It's my first season in rotax so me and my dad are still trying to figure out wtf is going on
First 8 onboard laps in a BMW Z4 V8 Coupe around the Nordschleife during a VLN multi class race.
The 3rd lap was released as a single (awesome) video some time ago, now you see full 8 race laps.
Lap 1-3 shows nice fighting. The driver of the Z4 doesn't manage to overtake the car infront but he sticks at the rear bumper all the time. From lap 6 on it gets a bit emotional because he could be faster but the car in front just blocks too good.
Lap 8 got a little surprise.
